Oman Air launches new through fares with Flybe
It is now possible to fly from the Isle of Man – and seven other regional airports – to Oman, thanks to Oman Air and Flybe’s new through fares. Starting from just £450, the new fares are available from eight of the UK’s regional airports. Building on the success of Oman Air’s double daily flights from London Heathrow and the new daily flight it launched from Manchester Airport in May 2017, Oman Air is now working with Flybe to offer through fares from regional airports via both hubs, plus one via Paris. Guests can book the through fares from the following UK airports; Aberdeen, Belfast City, Edinburgh, Exeter, Glasgow, Isle of Man, Southampton, and Birmingham. This means that travellers will easily be able to fly form their local airport to Oman’s beautiful capital of Muscat without the hassle of having to check their bags in for a second time. Guests will also have the option to take advantage of the network of over 30 destinations that Oman Air flies to from Muscat. Speaking about the airline’s exciting new offering, Simon Cook, Country Manager UK & Ireland for Oman Air said: “The success of our London and Manchester routes demonstrates the growing popularity of Oman as both a holiday and business travel destination. We are delighted to now be offering through fares with Flybe as we are always striving to give our customers more choice and flexibility. We are confident that working with Flybe to offer the new fares will cement the special connection we have built with the UK over the last 10 years.” Ronnie Matheson, Flybe’s Interim Chief Commercial Officer adds: “We are delighted to be able to offer our customers the added choice to connect with Oman Air for onward flights to Muscat from eight UK airports. This is a wonderful example of how Flybe is increasingly providing a wealth of convenient and seamless connections through our ‘One Stop to the World’ proposition.” Oman Air is currently engaged in an ambitious expansion programme which will see the carrier operate 70 aircraft to around 75 destinations by 2023. In recent months, the airline has increased the size of its fleet, launched new services to Guangzhou, China, as well as Manchester, and increased frequency on a number of its established routes.
